Frozen atmospheric water vapour falling in real time, and the best sound on a white record since Dillinger. This is a brilliantly conceived and beautifully executed work, a powerful narrative full of exquisite detail and elemental menace. Turn the lights off and tune into a disappearing world, this is essential listening from the Haswell Studio this winter.
